(Newser) – A cliff jumper gave his girlfriend the ultimate high by pushing her over a 400-foot drop—into a pendulum swing secured by a harness and ropes, the Daily Mail reports. With a video camera rolling, Creighton Baird tried for 45 minutes to gently persuade his companion, Jessica Powell, to overcome her fear and leap into a narrow Utah canyon. Finally he gave her a push and she plummeted over the edge with a hair-raising scream. Swinging through the gorge, she cried, "I'm breaking up with youuuuuu!" See the video here.

Baird laughed so hard, he fell over: "I just got dumped!" he cried. Another sporty looking dude walked over and asked him, "So, can I have her number?" But she later gave Baird a hug and thanked him for helping her make the jump, said Devin Graham, who led the thrill-seeking video project. The love, however, didn't last: "Sadly, last week they actually did break up," said Graham. "It had nothing to do with getting pushed off the rope swing."
